So far I'm happy with these results.

There are like 3 people I'm aware of, one of whom is a local news anchor, who says "assult" and it makes me stabby. (The other is a coworker and the other other is my son's friend)

Yes, Assault does not contain the letter "R" in the middle or end so I am good.

 

I pronounce it Uhsalt as well.
